History and development

Already in 1919 Philips brought the first X-ray tube to the market and in 1945 the first X-ray diffractometer was developed, forming the basis for the founding of the X-ray analysis group within Philips. Under the name of ‘Philips Analytical’ we grew continuously and the successes of our X-ray diffractometers (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence spectrometers (XRF) have made us the world-leader in X-ray analysis equipment. In 2002, PANalytical was incorporated into Spectris as an autonomous operating business. Since 1 January 2017 PANalytical has merged its activities with Malvern Instruments, a UK-based provider of materials and biophysical characterization technology and also an operating company within the Materials Analysis segment of Spectris. We continue to be committed to leadership and innovation, customer satisfaction, safety, environmental health, ethical standards, integrity, fairness, trust and mutual respect. With the increasing demand for on-line systems for the analysis of materials running on conveyor belts, the Sodern PFTNA systems were added to the PANalytical offering palette in 2010. In 2013 ASD Inc. with solutions for remote sensing and mining applications based upon near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) was incorporated in PANalytical. To complement our offerings for fused sample preparation equipment, Canadian ‘La Corporation Scientific Claisse Inc.’ (‘Claisse’) was added to the PANalytical group of companies in 2014. Currently we are the only analytical X-ray equipment supplier with own in-house development and manufacture of the X-ray tubes, the basis for the best analytical performance. We have over 1000 dedicated employees, are present in virtually all countries of the world, hold more than 250 patents and have research centers in Almelo and Eindhoven, the Netherlands and on the campus of the University of Sussex in Brighton (UK). Our fully equipped application laboratories are established in Japan, China, the United States, Brazil and the Netherlands.

GS 1000-II presentation

The GS 1000-II spectrometer can be equipped with a double electrode. With the unique double electrode spark stand, the analysis time can be reduced by almost 50% as the time for replacement of the sample, spark stand flushing with argon and pre-sparking for the second burn can be eliminated. Next to the time-savings also a drastic reduction in consumption of argon is achieved and sample placement errors can be avoided. Now watch how Associate Marketing Manager at PANalytical Tim Glose, gives an overview of this optical emission spectrometer.
